The 5008 was created in 1959 and was the first telescopic pole ever made for the pool industry. Customers love the simplicity of this external locking pole and its heavy wall tubing. Our 5009 with its patented internal lock uses the same tubing for it’s great strength. Both style poles are among the pool industry favorites, it just a matter of preference on external or internal locking assemblies. Check out the Dually Series if you want the power of both locks.
Outside Lock has been an industry favorite since 1959and is made of the strongest plastics ever made. the nylon male fitting is pressed onto the outside tube with a ton of pressure, so it won't fall off. The female and ferrule fittings are easily replaced when worn. The tubes are made of the strongest American made tubes in the industry.
